Duality’s theme has to do with the dual nature of our beings, karma and reincarnation. The mirrored image of a human form represents our dual nature. We all have the potential for good or bad. The spirit above the human form and the calculation symbols are our life’s tabulation – our collateral damage and/or karmic due.
The idea that the moral quality of our actions influence one’s rebirth is part of the Hindu tradition but can sometimes be found in other cultures. The Law of Cause and Effect says that every thought, word and act carries energy into the world and affects our present reality. Karma relates to the work we have ahead of us from both our past and present but also points to our life’s work to understand our relationship to the cosmos. The idiosyncratic linear marks to the left represent a mythological winged creature (our relationship to the cosmos) and the buffalo portrays our earthly connection.
